Suncatchers
You will need:

  • Scissors
  • String
  • Colored tissue paper
Cut two circles of the same size out of the clear contact paper. Use the tissue paper to make a flower, bird, or any other design. Press the pieces of tissue paper onto the sticky side of one of the circles. Seal the other circle over the first. Punch a hole in the top of your suncatcher, tie a string through its hole, and hang it in a window.
